Overnight Open Thread (23 Feb 2013)

So what is the difference between a prepper and a survivalist? I think I can agree with this definition. Bottom line, every one of us should be at least a prepper. I know I wouldn't want to have to rely on outside help in case of a disaster, terror attack, etc.

So if it makes good practical sense to be prepared for contingencies, why all the Demonizing Of Preppers?


PSA

As if you needed another reason why not to cheat on your wife, this one just might make you think twice. Have An Affair, Break Your Penis.

In what can only be described as the most painful example of karma on medical record, a new study in Sexual Medicine found that men who have extramarital affairs are more likely to break their penises.

Doctors at the University of Maryland found that half of their penile fracture patients between 2007 and 2011 sustained penis injuries when they were having affairs.

Man this map is entertaining. Vaguely Rude Place Names Of The World. I'm sure Sandra Fluke's favorite is the town of Vagina in Russia.

Somewhat related. Men Are Better Navigators Than Women.

Researchers from the University of Illinois looked closely at 35 studies on territorial ranges and spatial abilities in humans and a number of animals, including cuttlefish, deer mice, horses, laboratory mice, meadow voles, pine voles, prairie voles, rats, rhesus macaques and talas tuco-tucos (a type of burrowing rodent). In eight out of eleven species, the researchers found, males demonstrated moderately superior spatial skills than females.

This tendency applied regardless of territory size or the extent to which male ranges spanned farther than female ranges. This means that, even though females roamed just as much as males, they weren’t quite as good at it.

Japan Fashion

Well, at least it's not Florida. Latest Japanese Fashion Trend: Girls Wearing Panties On Their Heads.

Hollywood and Science

No surprise as Hollywood is scientifically incorrect in a movie. This time, it was A Good Day To Die Hard.

Our heroic team heads to Chernobyl, and one of the characters whips out a device that reminded me of the proton pack from the movie Ghostbusters. The character used it to "neutralize" the radiation.

Ummm, no.

Radioactivity cannot be neutralized.

TV Show

Forget Girls, I just might have to check out Magic City on Starz based on the award they just won For Excellence In TV Nudity.

Ok, ok, I keed. I probably won't watch that show. But I can't wait for Season 3 of Game Of Thrones. Brand spanking new trailer below. Thar be dragons!

Bacon Flavor

I just might have to give these chips a try. New Maple Bacon Flavor Kettle Potato Chips.
